What's the difference from magnesium elemental from magnesium Glycinate/lysinate chelated, sodium bicarbonate, and magnesium oxide?

What's the difference from magnesium elemental from magnesium Glycinate/lysinate chelated, sodium bicarbonate, and magnesium oxide?

Diff. absorption and: Magnesium always occurs as a salt in combination with other things such as chloride, oxide, glycine, citrate, taurine etc. Some forms are poorly absorbed; for example magnesium oxide is only 4% absorbed, so it does not raise magnesium much but is a good laxative. The best-absorbed are glycinate and taurate and those amino have benefits. See https://www.organicnewsroom.com/magnesium-supplements/

What is the richest food in magnesium?

What is the richest food in magnesium?

Organic: Also consider that the organic grown versions of those same foods will tend to be richer in magnesium. Our soils are magnesium depleted and have been for over 50 years. Conventionally grown (non-organic) food does not have as good nutrients as organic.

Why is magnesium preferred for torsades?

Torsade de pointes: I want you to read about EAD (early after depolarization) which is the mechanism of torsades due to R on T phenomenon. Magnesium is the drug of choice for suppressing EADs and terminating the torsades. Magnesium achieves this by decreasing the influx of calcium, thus lowering the amplitude of EADs. Mg is used for treatment in hemodynamically stable sustained torsades.
